  • 2016 NHA International Marine Renewable Energy Conference (IMREC)
    April 25-27, 2016, Washington, DC

    IMREC is an important and unique event to bring together individuals interested in marine energy to share challenges, find solutions, and continue to move this industry forward. IMREC is especially important this year since both the Global Marine Renewable Energy Conference (GMREC) event and the Energy Ocean event are NOT being held.

    Past topics discussed at the IMREC event include:

    • Financing instruments and U.S. Federal R&D funding
    • Best management practices
    • Global regulatory developments regarding marine renewable energy
    • U.S. and international marine energy projects
    • Environmental monitoring
    • Design tools
    • Testing infrastructure
    • Offshore safety and construction
    • Evolving technology trends and markets
    • Wave and water current energy research

    This conference is being presented by the newly formed National Hydropower Association Marine Energy Council – or MEC. Most members of the Council transitioned from the Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition (OREC), which ceased operations in January 2015.

    The National Hydropower Association (NHA) is the official trade association for hydropower in the United States. By forming a council focused on Marine Energy, NHA is bringing the conventional and marine energy industries together under one roof.

    NHA and members of the MEC believe this “under one roof” concept provides benefits to both industries as we collectively advocate the importance of all hydropower technologies as solutions to energy challenges.
